Ha, flipping Ha ...

... it was my birthday the other day and I got 2 cards I thought I'd share with you

The first one, from my father, but chosen by my daughter said

You know you're getting older when
  • Your shoes get more and more sensible
  • You don't tick the first age group box in questionnaires
  •  You'll pay anything for a pot of anti-wrinkle cream
  • Your mirror refuses to lie
  • Your natural hair colour is only available in a bottle
  • You can put weight on just thinking about chocolate
  • Hangovers last 3 days
  • By the time you're ready to go out, it's time to come home again 
Thanks Dad, and Mrs Nomad.

The second card was from my son and said
Mum had just read so much about the terrible effects of both chocolate and alcohol that she immediately decided to give up reading.
Thanks Son.

 I share my birthday with Chatterbox, so on Sunday we all went out for lunch.  I had asked the restaurant to arrange a birthday cake, which they did.  At the appropriate moment, ALL the waiting staff processed through, with one of the waiters carrying a cake with a huge sparkler and they were all singing Happy Birthday and then almost all the diners joined in too.  How to embarrass a 12 year old.

Sorry Chatterbox.

  16. Happy Belated Birthday. The shoes one is sooo very true. In the US I am coming up on a big birthday. I can sign up for AARP-- something, something about retired people, and the checkbox with the age when you are at the area where there is only one or two boxes below your current age. Oh my!

  17. Happy Birthday and love the cards. It reminded me of the Pickles cartoon strip in the newspaper today here in Canada. The grandson asks his Grandmother what she was putting on her face and she replies "wrinkle cream" and he replies Wow it really works.LOL
